Long Night Moon
 
 
 
Dawn’s winter sunlight 

Filters through the gloom 

And softly kisses everything 


The loitering ground mist rises 

Above the cold night’s 

Bed of overlaying ferns 


As the season’s solstice 

Stealthily tiptoes away 

From the long night moon *



* The Long Night Moon gets its name because the full moon in December occurs near the solstice, which has the longest night of the year.

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.
